Drupal is a free open-source content-management framework written in PHP under the GNU General Public License. Today Drupal provides the back-end framework for a significant percentage of all web sites on a global scale. These include published uses like personal blogs, as well as corporate, political, and government websites.
The Drupal community is now composed of more than one million members including many who actively contribute code, creating an amazing library of more than 30,000 free modules that extend and customize Drupal functionality in an unending number of ways.
The standard release of Drupal, known as Drupal core, contains basic features common to most content-management systems (CMS). These include user account registration and maintenance, menu management, RSS feeds, page layout customization, and basic system administration. Although Drupal also offers a sophisticated API for developers, basic Web-site installation and administration of the framework require very little programming skills because Drupal runs on any computing platform that supports a Web server capable of running PHP and a database to store content. However, just because Drupal can be very simple at the basic level that should not lead you to mistakenly believe it lacks power when developed in the hands of a Mentel professional. We have built some amazing things on Drupal, and your project just might be next!
